Bright got some Monster Trucks as a Christmas gift from our neighbor today. He's decided our nativity area would be an awesome place to set up a truck park. He's moving Mary and Joseph around. They are picking out which truck is their favorite.
Do you KNOW how long I have waited to see Bright playing with a truck/car/moving vehicle? From the moment I met Bright he has been into all things shiny and pink--not brawny and blue. It was cute. It *IS* cute (to me). I've never seen a boy so into traditionally girl things. Bright has said many times that he IS a girl. He says he wants to be a girl. But when Kendi came home SHE played with trucks. So for the first time we saw play with a truck. And we smiled. Then trucks were added to his Christmas wants.
Not to make this too serious of a post, but Bright's affinity for all things girly even caused Eric and I to have the "What if" conversation about gender confusion/homos*xuality. Please don't tell me that all boys go through the stage of liking girl things. I know that. Samren did, and he is one of the biggest "boy's boys" I know. Bright's preferences were WAY beyond that. And he liked nothing "boy." I don't know if Bright will still want to be a girl when he's older. I don't know if he will like boys or girls. But I know I love him and will always welcome him in our home and family.
For now though, we're enjoying seeing him play with trucks! After all, even girls should have a good truck!
P.S. Pleae no comments about homos*xuality and Christianity. No negative comments about IF Bright goes down that path. I will delete them. Just not ready to go there yet.
